YRP clients visit KFC!

YRP clients visit KFC!

Posted on: 4 January 2016 in

York Road Project clients were thrilled to be invited to KFC's Woking headquarters for a tour and to find out more about the company.  They learned about product development and even designed their own burgers - before eating them!  KFC are huge supporters of YRP and we are incredibly grateful for all they do for us.  The HR team run our employment workshop each week, the catering team provide us with frozen chicken, the shops often donate hot chicken and we were recently awarded a grant enabling us to purchase a new (and posh!) TV, projector and screen for our new premises in Goldsworth Road; The Prop. 

Corporate support is vital and if you work for a company and think you would like to help, please get in touch as you may have skills which are so useful to the clients accessing our services, many of whom are desperate to get back into work.

Here is what 'Jason' thought about todays visit:

'Today we at The Prop had a tour of the KFC office in Woking.  This was amazing, we got to see how their kitchen worked, how they prepared chicken and how they designed new products.  We tested chicken and built and named our own burgers.  This was great fun, also everyone was treated with respect which is nice because some of us feel we are not respected anywhere, so the way they approached us was so important.  They treated us as equals which made the whole experience feel worthwhile.  Thank you KFC for your time - we look forward to coming again.'
